Carmel is a great place to learn, grow and play. Carmel's teachers, administrators and staff are very dedicated. I am very fortunate to be a staff member at Carmel, but more fortunate that my daughter was a Carmel Cougar. She is in middle school now and is at the top of her class, and much of that has to do with the teachers she had at Carmel. She is very well rounded and self confident. I am so glad she was in elementary school at Carmel.

I have 3 students enrolled at Carmel. Everytime I have had to contact the school for any reason, the office staff is rude and treats myself and my wife like we are beneath them. I have a college degree as well and am far from beneath them. The teachers would rather stand outside during student pick-up, and "Chat" with their friends, while holding up the line of other parents, then to speak to them at a more oppertune time. All in all the staff at Carmel is the reason I am pulling my students out of there and Homeschooling them.

My children have attended Carmel for 6 years now. My children started in kindergarten. I live a mile away and we enjoy walking to school when the days are beautiful. Mr. Mauger has done a wonderful job motivating the children and all the teachers so far have been great and on top of all things. I would never want to send my children any where else. There music program, literture club, and many other programs are awsome.

I feel really sad that I live within walking distance and I don't feel comfortable sending my children there. The principal was rude and some of the teachers are very rude as well. They need to treat the children the way they want to be treated themselves. Our children are tomorrows future. The lunches stink. They need more nutrition in them not fast food lunches. The lunch ladies were nice. And they are the best thing that Carmel has going for them.

My children have attended Carmel for three years. The teachers are always accessible and very responsive, as are the principal and assistant principal. Each of my children's teachers has challenged and encouraged them. I am lucky to have an excellent school like this available for my children.

It's a great school, from the staff to the teachers to the students.

Carmel is a wonderful school. My children are thriving under the expert tutelage of Carmel's Staff. We've had excellent teacher's over the past 4 years (Ms. McBride, Mr. Mazria, Mrs. Cannon, Mrs. Smith and Mrs. Peek) who have always been willing to help my student's achieve their goals for the school year. The office staff is well informed, caring and always willing to assist parents. I read the review's other parents posted about Mr. Mauger and don't agree. I've had a situation that needed to be resolved between my son and another student. Mr. Mauger made the time to meet with me right away and handled it. I was very appreciative. I feel very lucky that my children are in the care of such competent people while receiving an education.

I think that carmel is a great school. The principal is very involved with his students and gets to know each of them by name. The staff is helpful and the students are more polite than any other school I have been to or visited in this district. I have lived in the high desert all my life and have gone to many schools here as a student and now as a parent and would highly recomend Carmel as a school that is involved in better education and attitude.

My daughter started at Carmel in Kindergarten, she's now in 5th grade.She loves it there,I on the other hand have a few issues with the school.I've been snubbed by some teachers because I can't be a 'hands on' volunteer all of the time.Some of the teachers don't give all of the kids the same attention as they do to the kids who have parents on the PTA or who work there.The dress code is not enforced for certain students like it is for others.I love how Mr Mauger is very involved with the students.You can tell he really loves his job! I do like the school.My daughter brings home high scores on everything as well as awards for various things.My son will start Kindergarten there next Fall.

Two of my five children are still attending Carmel Elementart, so I have watched this school grow tremendously. The leadership of Chris Mauger is simply amazing! The school practices excellent parent/teacher communication skills and encourages parental participation above most everything. If you are new to the area and are considering Carmel, good choice!

I have 2 children at carmel, and they have grown so much since attending this school. The teachers are careing, and have the childrens best intrest in mind. I have come to know many of the staff, since I have volunteered there for 3 years. Mr. Mauger, Mrs. weston, Mrs. bird, Mrs. cannon, and Mrs. Mcbride are all trully wonderful! keep up the great Job. my entire family loves and appreciates what you do. signed the mickelsen family.

I speak from eight years of on campus experience when I say that Carmel has some of the most outstanding teachers. Many teachers at Carmel are interested in educating children and making a difference in their life. They're there because they enjoy teaching and are good at it, I know, because I've been in the classroom working with these teachers. Both my children have had positive experiences at Carmel. As far as the parent involvement, it could be better, but I believe I've seen a marked improvement this year and hopefully that will continue. As parents we need to remember that the main responsibility for educating our children does not rest upon the school, but upon us. I believe the administration has the children's best interest at heart, but they could tighten the management up a bit to make things more cohesive.

I have spent many years volunteering at Carmel. I have had good experiences with the teachers. Although their are a couple that I wouldn't want my children placed with them. I have no problems with the principal nor the assistant principal. I actually like them. Mr. Mauger is about the kids and what he can do to make the school better for them, despite opposition. Trust me, he gets alot of that. That school needs more parent involvement. Its not because of the school, it's just that the parents

Over all I think as a parent this school is nice though the teachers need to be a bit nicer. I also think the principal is ok.. Not all that good at solving problems between teachers and students.
—Submitted by a parent


Posted June 16, 2004

This is an average school. Many of the teachers are young and inexperienced so hopefully the school will become better in the future. The principal is not pro-parent and can be difficult.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

About the tests


In 2012-2013 California used the California Standards Tests (CSTs) to test students in English language arts in grades 2 through 11; math in grades 2 through 7; science in grades 5, 8 and 10; and history-social science in grades 8 and 11. Middle and high school students also took subject-specific CSTs in math and science, depending on the course in which they were enrolled. The CSTs are standards-based tests, which means they measure how well students are mastering specific skills defined for each grade by the state of California. The goal is for all students to score at or above proficient on the tests.

The different student groups are identified by the California Department of Education; if there are fewer than 10 students in a particular group in a school, the state doesn't report data for that group.
